    Apple's have been growing on trees for as far back as the human race can remember. Just because someone draws a picture of an apple and says 'everything to do with apples mine' does not mean that he's correct.

    In fact, the apple logo was stolen from the apple tree. If Apple wins this lawsuit they will probably try to patent apples and apple trees themselves. Which means we'd have to pay them royalties every time someone buys an apple (fruit) from a supermarket.

    Yep, apple lawyers are 'fruits.' They should be banned from court.

    You got me curious, which other company has an equal amount of law suits against small companies for slightly resembling their logo? Preferably the same amount just within the last two years.

    Think it was BestBuy that was sueing a church in Wisconsin over resemblances between the church's "logo" and the Geek Squad "logo"...

    Sounds nasty. Do you have a source?

    Given that the other thread was closed, more or less because it made one of the admin teams start looking bad (his statements started to ring more and more like fanatic rants, and people started providing quite substantial pointers to facts that didn't agree with his fiction), I wouldn't be surprised if this thread simply vanished.

    But before that happens, can someone PLEASE upgrade the public rules to include "speaking bad things of the church of St. Jobs is forbidden, Apple is Holy!" so most people know? Because without such a rule upgrade, it would seem that threads are closed whenever they make a certain liar look bad.

    Thats too much. A mod can still have his own opinion on certain matter. They are human afterall. If they don't get out of the line and abuse tehir power, theres no need to calling them out.

    You're right. I'll just keep to myself because I'm not allowed an opinion.

    I'm very sorry to have ever hurt you. Want a hug?

    Actually, the problem seems to be that you're allowed whatever you want (including blatant lies!), while people contesting your "opinions" aren't.

    But never mind, I have better things to spend my time on. I take it yours is the "official line" of the Guru3D admin crew (since they aren't keeping you on a leash), so I'll just leave this thread now.

    Obtw, your delusions pretty much sum up everything that makes people loathe apple customers, and some of us considering you a dangerous cult that needs to be stopped any way possible.

    Good riddance.

    Wow. You've got some serious anger issues my friend. Out of all the arguments over all the threads I've been in. Never once have I banned someone over a difference or opinion.

    I've never carried that much anger towards other forum members. Once it's a new thread I leave it in the thread. You aren't, you're carrying that anger around with you.

    With that kind of anger I won't have to do anything. You'll annoy someone else and they'll ban you.

    That's absolutely ridiculous. They should just stick to selling low spec, overpriced electronics.

    I'm not sure if there some satirical banter going on between you two, but it's getting to be ridiculous. You guys are arguing over a company that has more cash on hand than the U.S. Government, let it rest.

    I'm 100% finished.

    It's Svein that seems to have some weird anger issues going on.

    If you two are going to argue then at least do it in Norwegian so I can get some laughs from Google Translate.
